BGE reminder as ospreys return to the area.

'As part of its commitment to maintaining reliable electricity delivery and responsible environmental stewardship, BGE welcomes ospreys back to Maryland and reminds customers about the company’s raptor protection initiative – Osprey Watch.

Customers are encouraged to report osprey nests located on BGE equipment by emailing the location and a photo toOspreyWatch@bge.com. BGE will remove the nest if no birds or eggs are present. If the nest is inhabited, BGE will either relocate the nest or place shielding on its equipment to protect the birds and mitigate the risk of an outage.

“So many of our customers and employees take great pride in our state being a seasonal destination for ospreys,” said Alexander Núñez, BGE’s senior vice president of regulatory and external affairs and member of the board of Audubon Maryland-DC. “Through Osprey Watch, community members have the ability to help protect the birds and also promote smart energy for customers.”'>>>
